Famous quotes containing the word leader:

    A bunch of horsemen curtly asked his name,
    Their leader in a different dialect stated
    A war was on for which he was to blame,
    And he must help them.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    I am a leader by default, only because nature does not allow a vacuum.
    Desmond Tutu (b. 1931)

    Most of the ladies and gentlemen who mourn the passing of the nation’s leaders wouldn’t know a leader if they saw one. If they had the bad luck to come across a leader, they would find out that he might demand something from them, and this impertinence would put an abrupt and indignant end to their wish for his return.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)
